Visited the bar on a Monday. Place was not that packed but a nice atmosphere! Go there then you like live music! Prices for drinks a bit high!

I came back to this place after a year and found that they have a new female singer. It was extremely difficult for us to find it the 1st time as Google Maps was quite strange for highlands area like Dalat (as well as Map Me). Only until the second time did we ask locals for Muong Thanh hotel that... More

Had a good night here watching the house band crank out tunes. Drinks cold and plentiful and prices standard. Highlight of the night was the 10 year old kid (nicknamed Dollar) poundin the drums and keepin the beat for the big boys. Good times.

excellent music at the Escape bar from about 9.30 & before at the V Cafe just up the hill. A good place to relax with some great blues music after a busy day.

My boyfriend and I went to the bar after dinner. The bar is located in the basement of Muong Thanh hotel so it was a bit confused us when we walked in, but since you're there, it's definitely worth it. They have good band, drinks are OK and we like it. Recommended!

I traveled to Dalat annually from the US and this was the second times hanging out at the Escape Bar. To be fair, there are not any other live band bars that I know of in Dalat. The first time I visited was during Vietnamese New Year of 2015. The place was packed and the atmosphere was very lively. I... More
